LYRICS
-----------------
I like to take my time,
And read between the lines
To get to know you better
Now and the night that's after
Behind these codeine eyes
Lies a restless mind and
I don't know where I go,
Listen
[prechorus]
But I'm only human
So are you
I'm only human…

[chorus]
Girl it's been too long
I've been hiding all my life,
And I've had too much to drink
Cus I thought it'd make it easy,

But I, don't even care right now,
And I've, been losing all these doubts
And I've, been looking all this time
For ways to make this easy.

Reviews


I like the pads at the beginning, along with the little clicks that seem to be build into the sample. The mastering is strong, and the piece has a good sense of atmosphere and progression throughout. The vocals sound rather breathy, to the extent that it started to bother me at around :38 and a couple of other places. I know you’re trying to express some degree of exasperation with the vocals, but I think it’s a little over-the-top when it sounds like you’re sighing after each note. Perhaps that’s a bit harsh, though. You’re certainly not doing that for most of the piece. Anyway, I liked the lyrics themselves, even if the emphasis on “I’m only human” seemed a little cliche. The drop at 1:32 was enjoyable - very spacey and more full-textured than some of your earlier pieces for the competition. I thought you could’ve done a bit more with the drums, though, and that the snare sample had a tad too much treble for my tastes. Admittedly, I was a little disappointed with the lack of new content during the second half of the piece, as well as the underwhelming ending. Still, the melodies are really enjoyable here, and the piece is quite catchy and well-mastered too. Keep at it, Steelside! ;)

steelside responds:

I didn't have time to finish the track the way I wanted to and will be going back to do so. The pads aren't samples, and the clicks are what happens when you have a tight attack with a gated delay and a high pass, as far as my singing, I've always been producer first, lyricist second, and vocalist third, it's just so impossible to get other people to record for you without paying them, feelsbadman.


You have a wonderful singing voice.



Maaaan, you´re killing it as always! Never failing to amaze since "What I See"!



Beautiful voice and lyrics ;D



5/5 stars :D
